Side Swipe - RID - Figure

After reading about these for a few months now, I ran across them in Toys R Us this evening. Not exactly what I had pictured, but a nice little product.

The packaging is RID style, rather than Armada with the RID logo, unlike the current KayBee spychangers. I already have all the Spychangers from the first go-round, but I like to buy one of the variants just to keep as a curiousity.

The tin appears to be a tiny little sliding box, in this case with a picture of Side Swipe on both the lid, and the interior of the box. His name is on top, the Transformers logo is on one side, and the Autobot insignia is on the other.

Side Swipe is posed in an action pose, or at least as much as he can be, considering his only articulation is at the shoulders. :) He's in bot mode, holding his rifle with his left arm outstretched. It's actually a nice effect, in my opinion.

The rear shows the others in the series, most of which I saw while browsing. The six original, plus Prowl 2 (creative name there) and Side Swipe. If you already have these guys, there's no need to get them again, in my opinion. Do what I did and just get one to have an example of the tin. They're only $2.99, so it's worth that.
